Creature From The Haunted Sea 16x 9




This is the 75 minute TV version of Roger Corman's (and Charles Griffin's) goofy self-parody "Creature from the Haunted Sea." For television, Monte Hellman wrote, produced and directed about 15 minutes of new footage to get the film up to a marketable length including an absurd theme song as performed by the wonderful Betsy Jones-Moreland. These scenes, presumably shot in 16mm, were never intended for theatrical release, but crop to a 16 x 9 aspect ratio (along with the rest of the film) as though that had been a possibility. This is just about as good an image as you'll find on this title, but the beginning is a little rough.

Creature from the Haunted Sea is a 1961 comedy horror film directed by Roger Corman. Written by Charles B. Griffith, the film is a parody of spygangster, and monster movies (mostly The Creature from the Black Lagoon), concerning a secret agent, XK150 (played by Robert Towne under the pseudonym "Edward Wain"), who goes under the code name "Sparks Moran" in order to infiltrate a criminal gang led by Renzo Capetto (Antony Carbone), who is trying to transport a colonel, a group of exiled Cuban nationals, and a large portion of the Cuban treasury out of the country.
